I tried to get in touch with the film productions of 'truth in numbers' (kriz
bell)- but they did not answered my emails. I wonder if we could get the movie for
presentations, events etc. - we even think about a translation of the movie cause we would
love to show it i.e. our donors. Planning a 'charity event' is on our list for
@Jay or Sue what do you think about the chance to get movie or even raw material?

Of course the celebrations can (and should) continue over the next year - specially till
But i'm still imagine it, Jan 15, website that show activities around the world,
events, meetups, projects.. Global projects and local projects..

We tried to speak with universities to have some "Wikipedia day" on the
university, but the problem it's winter break for most of the students, so most of

host huge party on one of the big nightclub here, to a free Wikipedia party for editors
and students.. but I'm still trying to build the idea and the budget, and then look if

Hey Itzik (and everyone),
I have a notion. There's no reason we can't have months, or a full
year, of celebrations. But I also think it'd be great to have multiple
celebrations around the world on January 15, and I was thinking it
might be interesting to have a couple of board members + staff members
to go out and be present at some of those. For example, I think Barry
is thinking about spending January 15 in Bangalore, with the chapter
So I'm curious to know: who is planning celebrations in their country,
and might want to have a board member or staff member come and
celebrate with them? Or, who might be willing to organize something?
I say this in part because there will likely be a January 15
celebration in San Francisco. But there's no reason it should be the
primary event. So if others are planning celebrations, or are willing
to plan them, the Wikimedia Foundation would be willing to help -- by
providing guest speakers, swag/outreach materials, or whatever else
would be useful.

We have more or less 4 months to the "dead-line", big part of this time is
going to be spent by most of us to the fundraising..
The amount of ideas, projects and information that been share here - was
very little.. We still don't have ideas from chapters or the foundation..
and no information about grants and global plans.
I'm starting to get worried.. 4 months is nothing - to plan, make a
connection, build budget, get sponsors and ext'...
The 10th Wikipedia anniversary can be a huge celebration week\month, and can
be only one day press release celebration. We have the opportunity to gain
more publicity, arrange public events and bring Wikipedia to the front.
let's don't miss it.
If anyone have practical ideas - please share them soon!
